The BUD FEDER SCHOLARSHIP FUND

Provide support to community members to attend Gestalt events who would not otherwise be able.

PURPOSE OF THE FUND

The Bud Feder Scholarship Fund exists to encourage a growing community of diverse practitioners and students from all over the world to attend our conferences so that we can share and grow together.

DEDICATION OF THE FUND

This wonderful achievement could not have been made without Bud Feder, whose passion, dedication and generosity throughout the history of the IAAGT scholarship fund has helped so many of us come to our conferences.

Many people have told me that the event at my award ceremony where many of you identified yourselves as recipients and facilitated small groups was one of the best ever and helped members be aware of what the fund really is: not a bunch of numbers but a vital flesh and blood contingent that contributes so much to the conferences…. and to the organization [many SF recipients have joined and been very active, serving on committees and on the board.
